Four hillside Cabernet vineyard sites, all with mineral-rich volcanic soils, are always the first focus of this blend. In 2016, our Merlot harvest was particularly incredible, yielding stunning acidity with full and silky tannins. It was a perfect partner to the vivid fruit profile of our Alexander Valley Cabernet vineyards. This year's blend, 93% Cabernet, 7% Merlot, achieves an uncommon, sophisticated balance.

Wine AdvocateA barrel sample, the deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon springs forth from the glass with vibrant black cherries, cassis and warm plums scents, backed up by hints of spice box, cedar chest, dark chocolate and tilled soil. Full-bodied and decadently fruited in the mouth, it has a taut line of grainy tannins and wonderful freshness lifting the opulent fruit to a long finish. 2,800 cases produced
